Leadership and the New Principles of Influence

Leaders at every level today confront two stark realities. First, in these fiercely competitive and endlessly turbulent times, they must do more with less. Second, the old-school management techniques weve long relied on to produce results frequently fail. Enter Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive and To Sell is Human, with a fresh approach.

Drawing on a rich trove of social science and cutting-edge practices from organizations around the world, Pink will demonstrate the new ways leaders are persuading, influencing, and motivating others. He will show the power of underused techniques such as perspective-taking, problem-finding, and using purpose as a motivator and offer concrete steps to put these ideas into action.

How Smart Organizations are Rethinking Innovation

Innovation is no longer anyone's job. Today it's everyone's job. That's why a top concern of organizations around the world is not just generating a few new ideas -- but creating an entire culture of innovation. In this entertaining and provocative presentation, Daniel Pink, best selling author of Drive, A Whole New Mind and To Sell is Human, shows how to build that culture. He explains which environments promote innovation -- and which suffocate it. He describes why people accept some breakthroughs and reject others. And he demonstrates new techniques for talking about innovations with colleagues, bosses, and customers.

Using the latest findings from social science along with an array of fascinating stories, Pink reveals the big ideas and practical steps that innovators need to move others to their side.

To Sell is Human: The New ABCs of Moving Others

A-B-C, Alec Baldwin tells a group of salesmen in the classic movie Glengarry Glen Ross. A-Always. B-Be. C-Closing. Always be closing. But best-selling author Daniel Pink says this steamroller approach has become a relic, because sales has changed more in the last 10 years than it did in the previous 100. Today, when buyers have just as much information as sellers along with ample choices and the means to talk back the rules have changed.

In his entertaining and provocative presentation, Pink author of To Sell is Human and one of the top business thinkers in the world will draw on cutting-edge social science and best practices from organizations around the world to reveal the new A, B, Cs of selling. A-Attunement (taking another perspective). B-Buoyancy (staying afloat in an ocean of rejection). C-Clarity (Identifying hidden problems and making sense of murky situations).
